Notes from Nurse McGill
Easy Ways to Help Prevent Colds
1- Frequent hand washing with soap and water or alcohol based sanitizer.
2- Cover coughs and sneezes with your elbow or sleeve, not your hands, to help prevent the spread of germs.
3- Get plenty of rest. Did you know that school age children need 10-12 hours of sleep each night?
4- Drink plenty of fluids…preferably non carbonated, caffeine free drinks.
5- Try to exercise regularly.
6- Stay away from others who are sick. Keep children home from school if they are sick.
The clinic could use donations of new underwear (no used underwear please) for girls and boys, sizes 5, 6, and 7.
